On Monday morning, a new moon in Gemini presents an open door back into your weirdest curiosity, a chance to really see what the world’s trying to show you. There’s a path here, one that leads out of the deepest part of your loneliness and into a world filled with people and light. On Tuesday afternoon, communication planet Mercury enters sensitive and intuitive Cancer. Here, your thoughts can become deeper, your words weightier. You don’t need to seek out every story that’s ever been told, only the ones that matter.
Aries Weekly Horoscope
People might ask you to keep your voice quiet this week, to keep your energy buttoned up or hidden away. They might try to make the case that quietness and decorum are what the world needs most from you, but that isn’t true. It isn’t your job to remain permanently objective, cool-headed and circumspect. It isn’t really your responsibility to have any kind of chill at all, and this is a good week to remind yourself of that. Wisdom isn’t the same thing as seriousness or aloofness; it comes in strange and bright and surprising containers, too.
Taurus Weekly Horoscope
Sometimes, all your brain’s unruliness can feel like inspiration, like the sign of a mind that’s healthy and alive, but sometimes it’s more like a trap, like a cage. This is a week for sorting through all the ideas that won’t leave you alone, for determining which have important information for you, and which are only noise; which thoughts are seeds, and which are only poison. Remember that you don’t have to listen to every last thing your brain tells you. You can turn some sour thoughts away at the door. You can let fresh air inside instead.
Gemini Weekly Horoscope
It’s possible for anything to change, even your own mind and even your own feelings. You might not be able to control the direction your changes take, but that’s okay. Control isn’t what you really need right now, anyway. This week, you can set an intention, you can set off down a path, with the understanding that sometimes trails branch, and sometimes they loop, and sometimes they lead in more interesting directions than you could have predicted at all.
Cancer Weekly Horoscope
This is a week to consider what you do and don’t owe to the world and the people in it. You know, with a bright certainty, that you do owe other people something—but is it your energy, is it your love, is it your time? Try to remember that you don’t have to share everything you have, or tell every one of your secrets, or offer up all your own brave love until there’s nothing left for you. Other people might try to dictate what sacrifices you have to make for them, but this week, don’t listen.
Leo Weekly Horoscope
You know, in your heart, how you really want to live and who you really want to be, but it might feel like the world keeps trying to drag you away from that clarity. It might feel like everywhere you turn there’s another distraction eager to make you forget your goals, eager to waste your time. This week, try to remember that you’re allowed to feel a little loose sometimes, and you’re allowed to enjoy the world. No time is really wasted as long as you remember which way is north, as long as you remember who you are.
Virgo Weekly Horoscope
This week, you might have to shed something in order to gain something better; you might have to lose something in order to make space for something new. It’s an opportunity to make a change, an opportunity to make a choice, and nobody else gets to decide for you what you’ll lose, or what you’ll find. Nobody else gets to decide which structures you’ll break down, and which ones you’ll build. Change like this can make your legs can feel wobbly and weak, but your heart can feel like it’s lit up by the stars.
Libra Weekly Horoscope
This is a week to let yourself be shaken by the world, to let your heart be cracked open, to let the sun’s golden light pierce through your jadedness, through your exhaustion, through your resistance to being surprised. Your ideas don’t all need to have a purpose right now, and your feelings don’t need repair the whole world today; you just have to pay attention. This is a week to accept the world in its lushness, and to accept yourself in your strangeness, and to be willing to work with all the change that comes.
Scorpio Weekly Horoscope
Sometimes, you might get the feeling that it’s important to pretend you’re not angry, even though your rage is hot enough to start a fire, or to pretend you’re satisfied, happy and fine, when really you’re lonely and hurting. This can be a protective impulse—maybe you’re protecting yourself from pain or weakness, or maybe you’re protecting other people from discomfort—but this is a week for honesty, both with yourself and with other people. When you say the truth out loud this week, a new kind of freedom becomes possible.
Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope
When you know yourself, when you know your values, you don’t have to be afraid of anything. With clarity of purpose, nobody can touch you, not really. In this spinning, spiraling world, there’s always so much noise, so many opinions screaming from every direction, so many real and potential dangers. It’s easy to become reactive, chasing one bright object then the next, dodging one criticism after another. This week, though, you don’t have to do all that. You just have to find your way back to the bright-hot core of your heart, the fire that’ll keep you steady and true.
Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
Lately, maybe it’s felt like tenderness does nothing but subtract from your power, nothing but make you weak against the evil that lives in the world. Maybe it’s felt like vulnerability has nothing to offer you. You might feel like all the world’s sharpness is aimed right into the softest places on your body: your stomach, your throat, your heart. This week, though, taking things personally won’t make you weak, and softness won’t make you easier to defeat. Your feelings, even your weirder ones, can make you strong if you let them.
Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
There’s this idea that to live rightly and well, you’ve got to cut away all the things that aren’t important, letting them all wither and fall away, until you’re left with only the things that are. This is partly true, maybe, but the risk is that you’ll define “important” much too narrowly. Your goals are important, but your happiness is, too. Your faraway future is important, but your body, your senses, your relationships right now are important, too. Don’t let your bright, observant mind become cruel and austere. Let your generosity extend even to yourself.
Pisces Weekly Horoscope
This is a week for recognizing that not all kinds of love feel the same—they don’t all feel equally nourishing, equally life-giving, equally right. You’ve been told, maybe, that it’s your job to accept with open arms every type of love that offers itself up to you, unless you can prove without a doubt that it’s rotten. But you don’t have to accept everything you’re given, and you don’t have to prove anything at all. You can move, always, toward the love that gives you what you need, toward the love that makes you feel unashamed and unafraid.
